    Hello there everyone,

    I've been using Micro Niche Finder since a while now and I really like it. Simply because: it's simple. I tried market samurai but it just isn't my taste. Anyway to get to the point. I have something that's really confusing me. I'm looking at a keyword now with a SOC of 5 and the "GO FOR IT NOW!" green tick while that keywords has an exact phrase match count of 1,450,000. lol:D

    So what do you believe in? Go for SOC regardless? I know many replies may be to "balance it" but you know, from the above result, it doesn't even seem logic to have a SOC that low and an EPMC that high. Assuming that both are "supposed" to give a clue about "competition", the situation is either one of them is greatly inaccurate or I misunderstood something and actually one of them has nothing to do with competetion (unlikely i think).

    Greatly appreciate your input. :)

    IF you are using the previous cracked MNF 4.xx.x. or so it would give you a east SOC.

    sorry for double posting..

    @ goredbull

    just confirmed the MNF findings using google to search for my keyword with quotes. (exact match). Results match.

    So it's either I'm missing something, or SOC is hugely misleading.

    eeew... dude.. i told u right ?, try it manually if u see results like this...

    let's say SOC is 5, EPMC 1.450.000.. then go with google manually, "your keyword".. . maybe it's got mores then 50 page, or the last page is 56, go to pages 56, i guess the actually pages is not more then 10 pages, and the results count of the keyword not more then 500 if the SOC results is 5 :)

    go check it now, and post the results in here...

    the problem in SE not in MNF, it's SE biased or anomaly

    cheers,

    Hmmm sorry man maybe I'm just not that good at explanation, but what you said here:

    is answered here:
    MNF's EPMC = Google Manual Search with "".

    Thanks for your feedback. :D

    Anyone else care to share their view on this? :)

    lol. We have an obvious problem understanding each other. Anyway, despite the way I say it and the way you understand it, bottom line is that I have done what you suggested.:D

    @ Kingfresh

    I don't have market samurai unfortunately. But in case what you say happens (huge difference between the two SOCs), what do you go with?

    Thanks.

    Yeah saw this, but why the last page shows a different count?

    Any page displays:
    Last page:
    okay now that's confusing. So by this we conclude that SOC is indeed accurate, right?
